India focuses on the development of connectivity with Bangladesh and beyond as the two countries celebrate 50 years of the diplomatic relationship.

"Connectivity between the two countries can change the face of the region. Connectivity is productivity," Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told reporters after a bilateral meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen at the state guesthouse Padma today.

Momen said they discussed the whole range of issues including water sharing, trade and connectivity, energy and cooperation on post-Covid-19 recovery.

Asked about border killings, Jaishankar said one needs to understand reasons behind the killings.

"Every death is regrettable," he said adding that many of the killings take place inside India.

"There should be no crime, no death," Jaishankar said.
